Another writing update


I swear I write one of these like every six months and I’m sad to say that this another writing update that doesn’t have a great news. I haven’t written a single word of my novel since my failed attempt at NaNoWriMo. I think the main reason being is that I am a huge planner […]

Goodreads Shelves!

goodreads 2018

I have been using Goodreads for a very long time, don’t ask me when I started because I have no idea. Well back in the day I don’t think I really understood the whole shelf system and as a result, my Goodreads shelves are shockingly disorganised and not only that but there are books on […]

A Court Book 3 doesn’t even have release date yet but I can’t begin to wait for it. A Court of Mist and Fury had such a good ending that I just can’t cope with the next year of not knowing. I don’t even know the plot yet and I’m still counting down the days. […]

Once again I’ve fallen short of my goal by one book. I can’t make excuses for this month, I just haven’t made the time. I prioritised TV, only because I have like three TV shows to try and catch up on. It was a month of rereads really. I wanted to read and finish some […]
